Goodbye Sasha #3

Apparently this is old news, but since I am playing catch up, please forgive me. Alexandre Giroux (or Sasha #3 as I liked to call him) was signed to a multi-year deal by the Thrashers after the Caps bid him adieu.

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Thrashers signed free-agent center Alexandre Giroux to a multi year deal Friday.

The 26-year-old Giroux had two goals and two assists in nine games with the Washington Capitals last season. Giroux also played in 67 games with Hershey of the American Hockey League, recording a career-high 70 points (42 goals, 28 assists).

I really like Giroux, so I hope this his chance to have some good NHL time. I think he is going to be a solid NHL'er.

Was he a RFA?

I'm pretty sure, off the top of my head, that he was a UFA and the Caps didn't make him a qualifying offer like they did with the others.
